Fur and Steel

Hi all,

Having done a few items for myself and others, when it come to cutting fur my weapon of choice is the scalpel. By cutting the back of the fur with a sharp blade I can avoid cutting the hairs on the front without all that tedious mucking around with combs and scissors.

Anyway, my question is bourne of frustration at the way that the fake fur seems to eat blades. Seriously, this stuff could blunt a monomolecular blade.

What do you guys use? Pros and cons, etc. And also: Any ideas how to keep scalpel blades sharper for longer (without resorting to cardboard pyramids).
